Dune

Revealing mistake: During the invasion of Dune by the Harkonnen, a Sardukar soldier throws a guard from what appears to be the palace's wall. When he hits the ground all the bodies around him bounce as if they where lying on some sort of cushion. (01:09:50)

Revealing mistake: When the spice filled tank carrying the mutated Guild Navigator enters the hall where the Emperor is waiting, one of the Guild agents falls to the ground at the left side of the tank; first an arm trying to stop the fall and then the head are visible for a moment. (00:06:15)

Revealing mistake: In the extended version, when Dr. Yue receives the message from Baron Harkonen, one of the "dead" bodies in the background can be seen moving. (01:00:55)

Other mistake: There is a scene in which Piter DeVries is talking about the Landsraad (one of the governmental organizations in Dune). Twice he mispronounces the name, saying "Lansdraad" instead.

Question: Admittedly the sound on my copy of this movie is lacking somewhat but when Paul is researching Arrakis and Gurney et all enter I swear I can hear the trailer for the movie playing in the background. Am I correct on this?

Answer: No. At least, not on the DVD I have. It does play the title tune in the background, though.

Answer: The beginning narration is playing softly, as if it's coming from whatever computer Paul was doing research on. Like he was watching a movie about the world he is living in, which is sort of odd.
